Your Analysis Approach for Enabling K/Ss Can Either Help or Hinder Later ReUse

Design Rules and Tools are needed to increase relevant/impactful Content ReUse.

You can ReUse Content many ways – and do it mostly poorly – and end up sharing more content for a bigger negative ROI. Why? How?

If shared content ultimately doesn’t focus on Performance Competence – and impact and improve that, then sharing improvements won’t lead to improved ROI. If your shared content isn’t authentic enough – then Research suggests that only 15% of Learners will be able to learn out of context and then apply to their context. So 85% of the ADDIE-like efforts and costs and then the deployment efforts and costs are not just for naught – they are for negative ROI from the “git-go.” Ouch.
